Clean and in a good location for central London.
I booked only 24 hours before and ended up with a triple room for just myself, so had no issues over room size. Room was clean and shower was good (seemed newly refurbished).
Was on top floor - pretty tight and I understand what people have said. You'd get the cases up the stairs, but it would not be easy.
Breakfast was included and was remarkably good - I expected it to be very basic....
I'd go back.

Room Tip: I was in room 11. it's top floor so avoid if you're not happy with tight stairways.

i booked a twin and a single. have just returned from our one night stay. both our rooms were not ready on arrival at 1pm. so left our bags in one of our rooms in the wardrobe so they could still clean the rooms. not a big problem. check in quick but not very welcoming. pregnant lady on reception, i dont think she is a people person, shame. we had one single on first floor i couldnt believe how small it was. the bed squeezed into a small gap, god knows how the cleaners manage to make the bed. bathroom not good, very old dirty/scum looking tiles on the floor of the shower, really didnt make you feel like using it, so didnt, generally needs ripping out and re-doing. second room twin, right at the top, you need oxygen when you get up there. room had a double bed and a single. this room looked like it had been recently decorated and bathroom looked quite new. breakfast was very good hot full english, lovely bacon, staff very pleasant and accommadating. i think the issue here is which room you are allocated, if we had just booked the twin, i might say we would return, but having seen the single room i would definalty not return.

I stayed in the Mentone for a couple of nights and wasn't very impressed. My single room was right at the top of the building and up some very narrow, steep stairs. The radiator didn't work and despite my asking that someone fix it, it was never done - in mid-November the heating should be working, and you shouldn't freeze in your room. My friend's room was a tiny box and, again, freezing cold. The breakfast is adequate but served luke-warm. The location is central enough but I won't be booking there again.

Third time staying in Cartwright Gardens and our second stay at the Mentone. This is an excellent location for anyone visiting London. The hotel is a five minute walk from Euston and St Pancras railway stations and the same to Russell Square tube station. It is in an area called Bloomsbury which is full of wonderful shops,pubs,bars and restaurants. The British museum, Soho and other London landmarks are all within walking distance.Hotel is clean with good facilities and serves a very good full English breakfast. They are very accommodating by allowing you to leave luggage if you have a late train. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to London.

The location is usually quiet. Russell Square and Euston stations are a walking distance of approx. 5 mins. Our room was fitted with a modern bathroom, bed was comfortable and had a nice view of the outside. Breakfast itself (full English breakfast) and the service was very good. The staff was friendly and attained to our needs immediately. We were very satisfied with our stay at this hotel and totally recommend it to other couples.

Reviewed 30 September 2013

This was our first visit, having stayed at the nearby Crescent Hotel on previous trips. The location is excellent -- near Russell Square and King's Cross and bus lines. The neighborhood is quiet and there are many good restaurants within walking distance.
The rooms are very small and the bathrooms are typically tiny. On the first leg of our trip we were greeted (I can't say welcomed) by a rather surly young woman who pointed us downstairs to our room. Tiny, overlooking an airshaft and not made-up yet. And quite noisy as it was just below the reception area. On our return from a few days in Amsterdam, we got a room on the top floor that was more commodious but quite a haul up the stairs.
On the plus side, the breakfasts were very good and the rest of the staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend avoiding the lowest and highest level rooms and the surly young woman if possible.
